  Dame Louisa Aldrich-Blake
by Kap2

Dame Louisa Aldrich-Blake (1865-1925) is two ways unless she had a twin! She gained distinction in surgery. In 1893 she was the only woman taking the Bachelorship of Surgery, gained first class honours and qualifed for the Gold Medal, and later was the first woman to gain the Master of Surgery degree.

The statue tells more of her institutional success.....

the scuplture is a study in stern resolve a contrast to Gandhi's serene humility.... which is nearby
